Starting to? That's a polite way of putting it.

then they need to suggest alternatives. It all boils down to the point of
Open Source. It's choice. If you're opposed to using closed source binaries
or software, so be it. Don't load those repos, don't install those pieces of
software. But don't force that down my throat either. You can't say it's
about choice and then take away one of the choices.

Exactly. Someone who installs openSUSE never "needs" to enable or
install the non-free repos. Simple... problem solved. Next question
